The PhD studies are intended for the advanced training of the student in research techniques. They may include courses, seminars or other activities oriented towards research training and will include writing up and presenting a corresponding Doctoral Thesis, consisting in an original research work. These studies lead to the title of “Doctor by the University of Zaragoza”.

The Doctoral School manages at the University of Zaragoza, all Doctoral Studies through 45 Doctoral Programs (12 belong to the branch Engineering and Architecture, 10 to Science and other 10 to Social and Legal Sciences).

The Doctoral Thesis can be carried out under the supervision of professors and researchers of the Technological College (research groups) within the above mentioned Doctoral Programs. Those most related to research linked to the Technological College are highlighted below.
